Mike Bloomberg Now Cribbing from Jeb! Bush's Playbook of Ultimate Victory

In 2016, wealth Establishment c**ks decided they'd really Connect With The Young People by doing some of that Twitter Snark but on a cutting-edge, ultramodern platform -- billboards.


jebbillboards

unhinged

Well, that effort to troll Trump with billboards went so well for Jeb! Bush and his C**kpaign Manager Mike Murphy that Mike Bloomberg has decided to commit his own Act of Love.

Here's how John Ekdahl greeted the billboards in 2016:

Should go about the same way now.

Oh wait -- Mike! is already going the same way as Jeb!

And you can't troll the Master Troll:

But Micro Mike isn't just buying billboards -- he's paying congenitally unfunny leftwing scolds to make memes for him:

20 This is super lame. Like at least four standard deviations lame.

Mike, I have an idea for you. I had to listen to *four* of your radio ads on my way home, so it is fresh in my mind, and these stupid billboards emphasize the point. Ready? Okay, here goes: tell me what you stand for. Use short, declarative sentences and active voice.

And no, trite phrases like, "we need to get it done against demagogues" and "we need to rally around our values as children of God" won't do it either.

Firm positions, precisely communicated. Go for it. You'll find it liberating.

It's still jaw dropping to me that Bloomberg has spent around $500 million so far.

At least the way Bloomberg is spending it, it's not going to do a damn thing.

Yes, because Arlington, VA and nearby environs are at risk of going for Trump in November. (Probably a gambit to boost turnout to counterbalance the rest of the state.)

100 Not that Asma Khalid would include the context of those allegedly scandalous Trump rally quotes, if she even got it, but Trump started with talking about his Apprentice show and then segued into how reality show producer Mark Burnett had said to him that this election was 100x better than all reality shows combined. Then Trump went on to describe the "cast" of this crazy, funny reality show campaign season, ending with, "but it's not a show, this is real." It was an effective way to both make the debate a big joke and then get own to the business of reviewing his real accomplishments and real goals.

You know what "mike" needs?

Endorsements from Wrestlers and Athaletes.

Also, "mike" needs to pay some Regular Joes and Regular Janes to hang out with him. You know, folks wearing blue jeans and plaid shirts, and carrying rifles around, with a long straw between their teeths.

So, one big picture takeaway from this Trump rally is how low-energy it feels compared to 2016 (and even 201.

No doubt - there are plenty of superfans here. Lots of applause for the usual lines. But a number of people have already cleared out.


Sure, Jan.

Here's a nickel's worth of free advice for the Game Show Network: I
watch game shows to watch silly normal folks having a bit of fun. It is a
tiny little slice of normalcy in a weird, fucked up, angry world. Don't
sell ad time to political crap. I get enough of that in real life.

122 I was hearing a report where that Yang weirdo that dropped out said Bloomberg contacted his donors and urged them to just not give to Yangs campaign.

He had the answer right to hand: he'd just finished saying that the murder rate had halved. He should've just said, "I know some people were upset about the policy, but we were losing so many young black lives that I thought something drastic had to be done. And while you may not like it, it worked, and saved hundreds of black lives every year."

276 His point was why didn't he expose it while he was an Astro. Why wait until you weren't part of the organization anymore. I don't know if snitch is the proper insult but I don't respect the guy.

Yeah, sure. Except someone from the Red Sox shouldn't be shit-talking about any of this.

Yeah, and Ortiz is probably the single biggest beneficiary of MLB looking the other way with SOME steroid users.

So... I guess I can understand why he doesn't care for "snitches."

What does that even mean? I skied in jeans all the time when I was a teenager. Jeans and cuddleduds, and an orange ski jacket with lift tickets on the zipper.
Posted by: Gem at February 21, 2020 08:16 PM (65i3Q)

I don't know what cuddleduds are, but when I was much younger than 29, we would spray our jeans with that waterproofing stuff, buy a ski jacket and hit the slopes.

291 Wait a sec.

Bloomberg had $50 billion. But the turnout is only around 126 million votes. He only needs half of those to win. That 62 million votes. That's $800 bucks to buy every vote he needs.

$1,000 bucks for my vote Bloomie. I swear. A steal. just knock it off with the billboards and ads.

''Mike, I have an idea for you. I had to listen to *four* of your radio ads on my way home, so it is fresh in my mind, and these stupid billboards emphasize the point. Ready? Okay, here goes: tell me what you stand for. Use short, declarative sentences and active voice. ''

Can't watch a hockey game here in Columbus without those annoying Bloomberg commercials. It's getting really old.
Posted by: Tuna at February 21, 2020 08:15 PM

Mike will get it done! (TM)

What has he said he wanted to do?
Confiscate Guns
Ban Big Gulps
Ban Salt in Your Food
Ban Smoking
Harass Minorities

I expect him to be the Totalitarian the Democrats always pined for.

Posted by: rd at February 21, 2020 08:26 PM (+0uDE)

294 Seriously, that billboard cost $10 k.

I'll sell my vote for $10k.

the advantage of giving me the $10k rather than buying the billboard, is Bloomberg is assured of getting one vote via wasting $10k. I'd like to see the billboard accomplish that.

295 "Donald Trump eats his steak burnt - Mike Bloomberg eats his steak medium well" is a bit condescending and snobbish. There are probably more people that eat there steaks well done, medium well or medium than medium rare (the so-called proper way) and Trump likes catsup on his, which probably has Bloomberg clutching his pearls.

After he wins in 2020 he can give free helicopter rides to most in academia, much of Hollywood and members of the media to celebrate!

300 Whatever bad you want to say about Trump, he has a clear and easy to understand agenda.

What did McCain offer in 2008? Another MidEast war?

Romney in 2012? A donor class whore that would only do 98% of what Obama would do?

Ideas and agendas really do matter way more than ad dollars. I will concede though money matters a great deal in down ticket races where things like name ID are an issue.

Those are the exact thoughts I had about Hillary! running against Trump. I couldn't imagine how much money would need to be spent to make people think she was a good person .

Posted by: Chillin the most at February 21, 2020 08:59 PM (lonOK)

301 291 Inspector Kemp,
Funny post but ironically while the estimated fortune is 60+ billion, that is related to his stock price which if he sells, ironically will drop the value of the stock (more of it out there--potential change in control, etc.) A lot of times the wealthy can get into a liquidity crunch when they spend all of the liquid assets and need more. Not quite the same as a margin call but forced sale of illiquid assets usually trims quite a bit off the wealth.

Posted by: whig at February 21, 2020 09:43 PM (EUDB2)

302 I like burnt steak.

Posted by: mercenary13 at February 21, 2020 09:57 PM (r1mci)

303 Unlike Bloomberg, Trump won't try to tell you how you should eat your steak.
